Through Tyler’s dual enrollment program, Tanner Lester set in motion a career in architectural drafting while still in high school. “I wanted to find a two-year degree that launched me straight into a career,” Tanner said. “After I earned those architectural drafting skills, I really didn’t need to take more classes for my career path.”
